“We were lucky that we escaped another defeat, and the match ended in a tie. Our performance was similar to last year,” England skipper Eoin Morgan told TRT.
The gameplay by Chris Woakes and Jos Buttler saved England from losing another match. Eoin Morgan accepted it and said that they may not be lucky every time. They have to uplift individual’s game to to pose a threat to the opponents in the upcoming matches.
Especially, England’s top order needs a reform and an urge to fire up the game right from the start. So, that the middle order doesn’t feel pressure. It will enable to play their natural game and present a big target to the opposition. Morgan definitely requires his top order batsmen to deliver a better performance with each match.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka must be filled with confidence as they have reached here after two consecutive wins over Ireland. SL defeated Irish cricket in all the segments. Thus, when they played against England in the first one day, they were apparently an improved team.
Srilankan captain Angelo Mathews was the highlights in the previous match. He stole the show first with his bat and then with his bowling spell. However, his hamstring injury restricted his play with the ball. That’s may be the reason why Srilanka didn’t win.
The Srilanka must be worried concerned about his hamstring injury. So, before playing in the second ODI, he has to go through a fitness test in Birmingham on Friday. However, it is highly unlikely that his injury will trouble him to pass the test, but at the same time, it will be a cause of concern in the 2nd ODI. It is similar kind of situation which arose during the ICC World T20 2016.England vs Sri Lanka Live Score
Another Sri Lankan batsman who fired up was Seekkuge Prasanna. He made a quick half-century in the first ODI. It was an extraordinary performance from this young star. The whole team will have more expectation once again today.
England is expected to play with the same team as it did previously. Liam is almost certain to return as he played a heroic inning with his bat. Steven Finn will once again sit on the bench.

England: Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Jos Buttler (wk), Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid.
